Old World Wedding Ideas from Gloster House
We're starting our week by being transported by the timeless style and vision of styling powerhouse Pearl & Godiva and photographer Koby Brown. There's nothing more poetic than an Old World inspiration and this beautiful editorial from a talented team is a layered, light, elegant story...
“You are my love story, and I write you into everything that I do, everything that I see, everything I touch, and everything I dream… you are the words that fill my pages.” A.R. Asher
From Koby Brown: "I have always loved the idea that our souls have known and loved other souls in the past – somewhere just out of reach of our current memory. The thought that two souls can find each other again, over and over, regardless of the time or place, is remarkable. As we move through this life, we change, we become more than what we were before, and yet still less than what we will ultimately be. Layered within, are moods of light and darkness, happiness and hope, isolation and peace. This journey, this romance, if you will, is the inspiration behind this collection of images… and hopefully serves as a reminder that there is always more to the story, the journey is not ended.
Photographing a wedding editorial in Ireland at the extraordinary Gloster House styled by Pearl & Godiva was a beautiful experience. There really is something special about Irish light, it is inspiring in and of itself. That light lent its beauty in a captivating way throughout the rooms of Gloster – I can certainly imagine the happiness of real weddings dancing through the halls. Pearl brings a special magic to every project on which she embarks… ideas full of texture, balance, and depth working towards her vision. She is a remarkable stylist, and I thoroughly enjoyed the process of capturing her design."
“In the end, she became more than what she expected. She became the journey, and like all journeys, she did not end, she just simply changed directions and kept going.” R. M. Drake
